Inspection of places of production for Xylella fastidiosa
The Standard describes the procedures for inspection of places of production of plants for planting which are susceptible to Xylella fastidiosa. All potential host plants have been considered as well as insects which are vectors of the pest. The scope of a place of production inspection may be for export or for internal country movements of materials or as an element of a national survey. Further inspections would be needed to determine freedom of a country or area from the pest concerned. The Standard does not cover eradication or containment measures in infected areas, or measures needed to establish and maintain pest-free places of production within areas where the pest is known to occur.
